Ostergotland (Thu after first Wed in Aug). One of Sweden’s most traditional markets, attracting 100,000 visitors to this medieval city. Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Outdoor Concert, Stockholm (2nd Sun in Aug). This concert on the lawn outside Sjohistoriska Museet is one of the highlights of the season. Gotland Medieval Week (early Aug). Visby once more becomes a 14th-century Hanseatic city with tournaments, plays and music and participants in colourful medieval costumes.
Hjo Accordion Festival (2nd weekend in Aug). Accordion players meet in Hjo on the shores of Lake Vattern. Crayfish and Fermented Herring (end of Aug). Although there is no longer a statutory start date for eating these national delicacies -accompanied by ice-cold schnapps, cheese and silly paper hats – this is when Swedes party the most.

It’s harvest time in the forests and countiyside, and a wide variety of delicious edible mushrooms, as well as blueberries, lingonberries and the red-gold cloudberries of the northern marshes are all ripe for the picking.
